Living the Dream

find_your_place_edited1

“There is nothing wrong with Living the Dream. But make sure it is your own dream and not someone else’s.” – Vlad

Mankind is slowly achieving great progress in terms of technology, medicine or astronomy.

But what happens when creativity, originality, individuality and spirituality are cast aside, forgotten?

We become robots, no more than mindless drones to the great machine that society is.

We achieve great things in terms of technology but we forget to do what we love, to do what we really like deep down in our hearts. We forget how to be humans.

What is the reason for such a downfall?

Among other various reasons presented on Interview with Your Consciousness, I will show you one of the biggest factors in leading us astray from the path of humanity, love, kindness and connection to the divine.

The Struggle to Live the Dream

What am I actually saying by “living the dream”?
I am referring to the idea that each and everyone one of us wants to live his or her life according to a particular style, in a particular manner and according to the dreams and wishes the person has.

Example: Susan has always dreamed of becoming a successful finance advisor. She has therefore stirred her life towards this type of career and consequently, her friends, her current town, car, apartment, clothes, food and sexual life revolve around this particular dream that she wanted to achieve, or LIVE.
She is working long and late hours, she barely has time for a relation-ship.
For sustenance, she is satisfied with buns for breakfast, 4 coffees a day and some fast-food takeaway.
She wears uncomfortable clothes, drives the latest BMW

3 Primary Reasons for Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness

depressioneditedI remember a day. The day that I took the decision to move away and give up everything.
Job, girlfriend, friends. Everything.
The following period was a time of Ignorance, Sense of Loss of “my possessions” and eventually hate towards the things I, personally and voluntary, gave up.

The levels of Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness peaked record levels and I soon plunged into the darkness and never-ending abyss of depression.

These negative and conflicting emotions that govern the lives of most of us have long since roamed the lands of earth, created a vicious circle for dissatisfaction and unhappiness.

These 3 poisons, how the Buddhist like to call it, go hand in hand and will do their “best” to bring you down.

The 3 negative emotions I am about to share with you are so common that you are probably being influence by them as you are reading my article. Hell! I am while writing this article.

What happens when one can detach himself from emotions and be the observant? Total bliss happens.

Desiderata – Or How to Have a Balanced Life

have-a-balanced-lifeMost of us wonder how to have a balanced life.
Life is like a Harp. It is composed of strings hooked up to a frame.
You can think of these strings as the elements that make your life full, complete, just as each string makes the harp a harmonious musical instrument.

You have to tune each of the strings in order to have a harp which sounds harmoniously when you play it.
Same with the important elements in your life. It is extremely important to work on and with the elements which govern your life, if you want to live harmoniously, a soul which sings to you in the most beautiful way possible.

These elements that you plan on tuning can be the following: Relationships, Career, Passions, Hobbies, Money, Friends, Reading, Travelling, Learning, Understanding, Being Spiritual, Thinking outside of the box, Being Aware, Nutrition, Healthy Life&Style etc. You get the point. Some of them are directly presented on Interview with Your Consciousness.

If you want to have a balanced life

Birdman and the Ego

1213A rainy autumn evening in London, with leaves all over the sidewalk and people in their cars rushing through the rain towards their homes to sit down and sip a warm cup of tea. The tension grows while they await for the traffic light to become green – the colour which will grant them free and unconstrained access towards that final warm destination.

In spite of it all, I decided to leave my house and drive towards the city centre. What better night in London then a rainy one where you can enjoy the company of friends at an old-school cinema where Jack the Ripper roamed ages ago – Whitechapel.
Genesis Cinema. Featuring: Birdman.

All I Am Is A Cacophony of Memetic Engineering

engineerfacebookEverything that composes that which I believe myself to be;
a cacophony of memetic imagery;
archetypes, conditioning, programming;
of words, utterances and sounds;
vibrations and frequencies;
a dazzling array of hues and variations of light –
All of these things are distractions;
A lotus eater machine designed to capture my attention;
stealing my focus away towards some grand, fascinating illusion.

Daily Practices for a Spiritual Life

copypicc

A great philosopher once said: “The endeavour to persist in its own being is the essence of the individual thing.” But when the day comes that the mind and body will be separated… what will happen to the soul?

As promised in my previous article, The Spiritual Path in Modern Times, I have gathered and put together a list of essential daily practices for a Spiritual Life to come in handy in these crazy yet interesting times we are living in.

There is no need to crowd your mind up by trying to incorporate all of them at the same time in your day to day life.
Start with a few, then slowly add more from the list and eventually you will be able to alternate these practices to give you the best combination for the best results.

These are gathered from various Buddhist and Spiritual books with the aim of making every living situation part of your spiritual practice.

You can be living the spiritual practice, instead of just doing it by following the next list of “to-do” activities, with details on how to do them easily found on Interview with Your Consciousness articles:

The Spiritual Path in Modern Times

meddd

What did the Dalai Lama say to the New York hot dog vendor?
“Make me one with everything.”

In a world where every second counts in order to either make money, consume something or stare at your phone, you find yourself wondering what is all of this for? Is this true happiness or am I just painting a rotten wall for the time being?

How many of you have ever wondered what does it take to attain a certain state which grants you constant and deep happiness, makes you less prone to outside suffering and allows you to realise we are all part of something bigger?

Many dwell on the perfect situation where they can start living the life the way it was meant to. The life which follows the spiritual path.

However, we all live in a perpetual active world around us where things always poke at us and take all of our time.
This would surely make one beg the question:

What is Consciousness ?

Lucid 1255Dreams

“Consciousness is that one element which makes us all different one from another.
It is that which makes one ignorant, opened minded, hater of life or embracer of happiness.”
  Vlad

The first thing that comes into mind when thinking about Consciousness is the state of being Conscious. Being aware of the environment around you, of the air that you breathe, the taste of the food that you eat or the sounds that you hear; listening to your inner voice and having a profound understanding for your interlocutor. Or just simply: being aware of yourself.

What is consciousness more exactly?

Consciousness however, relates to all of the above – and it embodies a general personal state of being. You could consider

Contemplation: To Procreate or Not?

2_edited_22111Some might say that the current state of mother Earth and the path that the human race is following are connected at a symbiotic level since our actions, be it bad or good, have a direct influence on our home.

During the last hundred years, the natural order of things has been violated by man.
For thousands of years, the simplistic way of life of homo sapiens has allowed nature to remain balanced. Only the fittest survived thus allowing the better genes to pass on. Only the strongest and smartest survived in the harsh environments and allowed for families to continue their genes up to our present day.

Only the fittest and strongest were allowed to mate with a female, be it

Unintended Guide to Free Thinking

M-_Website_Design_Pictures_Articles_laquatus_thecreativemind_edited5Many have always wondered and some have asked me how to actually think outside of the box.

We would firstly have to consider what it actually means and what does it actually relate to.
This phrase could be translated into being a free thinker, avoiding the system or systems in some cases, avoiding what the media, the doctor or the bus driver says or simply just being (as others might call it) the black sheep of the sheep masses.

The first step into realizing what has to be done towards this process of becoming a free thinker is to immediately stop listening to the news, radio, TV or reading the majority of commercial papers.
